Three Douglasville men and a juvenile were arrested after rummaging through cars in downtown Newnan neighborhoods.
The incident occurred on Sunday afternoon when a police officer witnessed a car nearly strike an oncoming car on Clark Street after pulling out of Kellogg Street.
After pulling over the car, the police officer noted the smell of marijuana coming from inside the car and conducted a field sobriety test on the driver, identified as Conrad Morris Hunter.
The three passengers told police they were coming from a party that got canceled, according to the police report.
Inside the vehicle, police reportedly found a number of items, including a driver’s license, insurance card, iPhone, debit card and handbag that didn’t belong to the occupants.
It was discovered that several cars in the Clark Street, Temple Avenue area had been rummaged through. During questioning, Hunter advised police that the juvenile in the car had coerced him into breaking into the cars and that was the reason he was driving erratically, the report stated.
The other three passengers reportedly told police it was Hunter who broke into the cars.
Hunter, 20, was arrested and charged with five counts of entering auto to commit theft, failure to yield, headlights required and driving under the influence of drugs.
Jadin Kalid Morrow, 18, was also charged with five counts of entering auto to commit theft. He also has an outstanding charge of theft by taking auto from an incident in the county from last month.
Jaimere Sincere Wright, 22, was charged with five counts of entering auto to commit theft. The juvenile was arrested and turned over to his mother.
